This session will be aimed at teachers and advisors who are new to the Cambridge admissions process. James Davies-Warner and Naomi Walker-Pearl will give an overview of how the process works, how we use data throughout the process and what we're looking for in UCAS references and personal statements.

In this session, Naomi and James will explore why super-curricular resources are so important and how they make up the backbone of a student's application.

One of our Law Directors of Studies will take teachers and advisors through a recording of a Cambridge Law interview and will provide a commentary on the interview.

Dr Sutherland, Admissions Tutor for Corpus Christi, will provide a commentary on a recorded Cambridge interview - this time in Engineering. Teachers and Advisors will gain insights into what an Admissions Tutor looks for in a strong Engineering interview performance.

I first came to Corpus because of an access event I attended here when I was in Year 9, my school was invited to Corpus to get a feel for Cambridge and university life. I had my heart finally set on Corpus once I attended an open day in Year 12 and got a detailed look at what medicine here was actually going to be like. The central location and the intimacy of the College community is great for meeting people and getting to grips with a daunting environment. The buildings are beautiful and the people are fantastically friendly.
